Native Americans in New England died of European diseases in the 1500's and 1600's, Dozens of tribes originally lived in this area. The Abenaki people retreated to canada and the british called them Canadian Indians.
Today 2000 Abenakis live on two reserves in Quebec and another 10,000 Abenaki are scattered throughout New England.
Some Abenakis today have a traditional cloak or moccasins but they wear modern clothes like jeans instead of breechcloths and they only wear feathers in their hair on special occasions like a dance.
The Abenaki people used Clubs,bows and knifes for weapons and there main source of food was from hunting animals, they did plant some crops.
